Hello, does burning calories getting hot and pounding your all your joints not appeal to you? Well if that’s case then swimming might just the ticket for you. Men burn up to 840 calories per hour and women burn 720 calories per hour when swimming. Swimming as an activity burns the third most calories out of all the exercises a person can do. Since the beginning of the Olympic era of sports the phrase “I’d love to have a swimmer’s body” has been uttered by people wanting to get slim and fit the world over. Swimming is a great way to burn calories and lose weight.
